Argh...sick

Sitting here at home on a lovely sunny day, with a blocked nose and dry throat. I think I may have caught a common cold. *sniff* I really hate them, makes you feel horrible even with minor symptoms.

On Thursday, I had my first riding lesson in two months. It took me a while to get the hang of things like balance and position, not to mention how to put on the bridle and halter on a naughty school horse I ride, Whiskey! He is also really fluffy with his winter coat, grooming him took twice as long.

Basically just worked on walking and trotting, and with a lazy horse like Whiskey it was difficult getting him moving for a stretch of time. So I was quite happy when we went around the arena twice without him slowing down or stopping! It was also the first time I used a whip. My instructor (not my usual one) said he needs it. Hmm... =/

No pics or videos this time though, I will try to remember next time so I can see what I need to improve on.
